I am currently unable to install any packages. At first it started with complaints that it couldn't find
/usr/bin/python (not 100% sure of the path here) so I tried to re-install python using synaptic. The re-install failed as well.
Now, I cannot access the side bar in Unity and no keyboard short-cuts work. I can access Chrome by right-clicking a file and selecting "Open with..." and access the command line using Alt-Ctrl-f# but that is about all.
sudo apt-get install with the results:
Reading package lists... Building dependency tree... Reading state information... You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: apturl : Depends: gconf2 (>= 2.28.1-2) gwibber : Depends: libgwibber-gtk2 (>= 18.104.22.168+r1119) but it is not installed Depends: libgwibber2 (>= 22.214.171.124) but it is not installed ibus : Depends: gconf2 (>= 2.28.1-2) libgksu2-0 : Depends: gconf2 (>= 2.28.1-2) update-manager : Depends: gksu but it is not installed

Any help would be great. Seems like I'm 100% screwed.
